As you already know, I don't use Ubuntu.
However my favourite BitTorrent client is BitTornado. I find it flexible and it has the features I need.
Available for all my fav distros, I suppose it should be available for Ubuntu too.

I'm a big fan of Transmission.

Agreed. Transmission is hands down my favorite non-Windows torrent software. I have mine set up to monitor a CIFS-shared directory for .torrent files and queue new ones up new ones whenever I drop them in.

I prefer Transmission on any UNIX-based system.

I would say Deluge because is the most uTorrent like. Transmission is so simple for me.

Do you suppose you could turn this into a poll perhaps? My vote is on transmission.

uTorrent is probably the fastest client of any OS.
While we wait for a Linux client, uTorrent.exe works fine under Wine.

Transmission is very good on Mac, although I have not tried it on Linux. I think Ktorrent is reasonably OK as well.
